The Statistics Graduate Program consists of 24 faculty including members affiliated with various departments on campus. The program offers both Ph.D. and M.S. degrees. The M.S. program provides students with broad familiarity with the most widely used statistical methods and with solid background in statistical computing. The Ph.D. program combines advanced coursework in probability, theoretical, applied and computational statistics, balancing methodology, computing, and applications. Students acquire a solid background in probability and mathematical statistics and are trained in modern statistical methods, data analysis, applications, and computational tools. The program offers the opportunity for in-depth concurrent study in an applied field for all graduate students, and Ph.D. students can elect a subspecialty in the area of biostatistics.
